Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okey we can write lines either two forms: ax^2+bx+c or y = mx+n In first form the slope will be a/b and in second form m is the slope. If we organize the equation we get 3xy=3 3x=y+3 y=3x3 So slope should be 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry it shoul be 3x=y3 in second step Then y=3x+3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okey moving on we found that the slope should be 3. So as I said before you can write a line like y=3x+n because we know the slope but we don't know what exact line is. It says line passes through the point (4,2) It should be true for our line 4 is x and 2 is y (x,y) 2=3*4+n 2=12+n n=14 The line is y=3x14
